No. I don’t think everyone’s meant to. And I don’t think everyone who says (or even thinks) they do actually does. I think that, currently, those are the cool things to do and, for a lot of people, it’s become a community-wide game. I think a lot of the people who do pretend use their experiences to manipulate and hurt other people, which I’ve seen more times than I can be comfortable with. I think that there are a lot of predators with fake godphones in the world. I have certain acquaintances that seem to attract them and I’ve seen the word godphone used to excuse a lot of horrible fucking behavior, and I don’t think that’s even a little bit okay.
But, no. To answer your question without the rambling, I don’t think that everyone is meant to do either of those things. And I think that, if people spent less time measuring their accomplishments by everyone else’s, I’d have a lot fewer frustrated people in my inbox every day telling me they feel like a useless witch.
